This past Sunday was my first time leading worship since Christmas Eve 2010...the longest break I have had in about three and a half years! I introduced a new song "I Will Follow" by Tomlin to our HHI Campus this week and they responded well. I know them so well and when they start bobbing their heads to the beat and smiling, I knew they were thinking "Ok, this is alright!"
I felt so refreshed and ready to facilitate worship! We are in the middle of a series on finances and Todd shared a lot of his personal struggle with finances over the years. You can hear it here.
I added a new vocalist to our HHI team - Katie. She is the wife of Luke who has already been singing and playing acoustic the last 18 months. They both have such unique voices and I loved having the ability to trade off leading between the three of us. Luke led "Beautiful Lord" by Leeland during our Time of Response. I just can't get enough of that song and Luke does it so well. As it happens so often, the words so connected to Todd's take away from his message and I didn't know it would before I chose the song. I love it when that happens! "Center" has become a mantra of the Island Campus. I have led that song since we started as a church campus. I love hearing our people sing it out with all their hearts!
Here was our setlist:
"Come Now is the Time to Worship" - Vineyard
"Awesome is the Lord Most High" - Tomlin
"I Will Follow" - Tomlin
